So I was thinking of trying out Crystal, I had tried it multiple times but left it midway. Now that there’s a book on it and it’s version 1.0 (not that pre-1.0 ever stopped me from learning a language), I was thinking of giving another dive.
My previous experience with the language was good, I mean, I never used Ruby but they do have similarities and I like that type of syntax. It’s pretty fast too. The only con for me was the editor support, compared to that, Nim has much better editor support (It has a pleasurable syntax in front of a performant system but I think I like Crystal syntax more).
Does anyone have any shareable views about Crystal? Any advice/suggestions/feelings on it? Anyone planning on learning it?
